Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.
September 26. “Button, here’s a strange bit of news.”

September 26. “Button, here’s a strange bit of news.”


“Indian scientists have, for the first time, grown a modified spud called ‘protato’ which has upto 60 per cent more protein than ordinary potatoes. Surprised?”

“Not really. If scientists are making babies outside a mother’s womb, what stops them from creating just about anything? Will protatoes taste like potatoes?”

“Subra Chakraborty who created the crop says that protato will cook better and will have better processing quality and palatability.”

“And when will we get to eat these protatoes?”

“The team has already applied to Indian regulators for permission to sell these protein-packed protatoes.”


“I only hope the chemicals used are not harmful.”

“Where did you read about this?”

“In the Mumbai Mirror of September 22.”
